The Miami Dolphins were once 4-3, but that was a long time ago my friends.  The Dolphins currently sit at 4-6 and are now 3 games behind the Patriots in the AFC East.  The rest of the division isn’t doing much better, since the Bills and Jets are tied with the Dolphins for 2nd (and last) place.  Since all 4 teams were tied at 3-3, the Pats have gone 4-0, with the rest of the division going 1-3.  That is why the standings look like they do right now.  The Pats are running and hiding with this division and if this were an election, it would already be called by Wolf Blitzer and the CNN news team. New England Patriots (7-3 overall, 3-0 division) The Patriots welcomed in Andrew Luck and the Colts on Sunday and the rookie QB gave the Patriots fits in the first half.  Then, a few turnovers and special teams plays later, and the Pats put up 59 points.  The Colts were outclassed by the Pats, who took a strangle hold of the AFC East with this victory.  This week, the Pats will head to New Jersey to take on the Jets (4-6) on Thanksgiving night.  The Pats will look to improve to 8-3, while the Jets will try to climb back into the Wild Card and Division races. New York Jets (4-6 overall, 2-2 division) The Jets finally won a game on Sunday, beating up on Sam Bradford and the Rams.  The Jets defense looked good for a change and harassed Bradford into turning the ball over.  The Jets got out to a lead, which limited the effectiveness of Stephen Jackson.  The Jets needed a win in the worst way, following their 3 game losing streak.   The team was on the verge of imploding, although I still don’t think they’re far away.  The win helped, but I could deal without the Jets players saying the Jets are ‘back’.  Please, you’re 4-6 and if you lose to the Pats on Thursday night, you’re season is over.  You aren’t back yet.  The game on Thursday night is a must win for the Jets and I actually think they have a shot.  For whatever reason, the Jets give the Pats fits and always find a way to beat them at least once per season.  Granted, the Jets could easily go out there on Thursday night and get blown out 48-10, but I’ll probably be passed out by that time anyway.  (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2
